In my inbox today was a link to Republican Ben Crystal’s MySpace page. Crystal, who formerly hosted a radio talk show on WBMQ (630AM) in Savannah, recently announced his intentions to seek the Republican Party’s nomination for Congress from the 12th district.
On his MySpace page, Ben Crystal lists his occupation as “professional a**hole earning less than $30,000 a year.” Neither of his opponents in the Republican primary, Ray McKinney or John Stone, could be reached for comment on Crystal’s self-proclaimed occupation. However, a political analyst familiar with Georgia’s political landscape said he thought Washington was full of a**holes, professional or not, and that the halls of government did not need another a**hole wandering through them especially one who openly bragged about it.
The three Republicans will face off against each other in the July 15th primary for the right to face Democratic incumbent John Barrow in November.
